HOW TO MAKE A COOKIE BOX:
When it comes to making the best holiday cookie box, there really is no right or wrong way.
Choose an assortment of cookies:
Pick a few of your favorite Christmas cookies, at least four to five in different shapes and sizes. You also want to choose cookies that are sturdy and will hold up well if you plan on shipping or transporting the box. You can fill your box with a medley of store-bought and homemade holiday cookies. This helps to give you a variety without having to bake everything from scratch.
Build your box:
Start with open wooden box and use dividers to separate your cookies. I found my box at Michaels but you can also try Hobby Lobby, Target or even Walmart in the craft section. If you don’t have a wooden box, you can also use a sturdy heavy-duty cardboard box or cookie tins and add dividers or tissue paper.
- For the dividers – you can either make your own cardboard dividers or you can also use cupcake or parchment paper liners.
Organize your cookies:
- Separate cookies by type or color.
- Stack cookies in different ways
- Use ribbons, napkins or tie them up with twine to make them visually appealing or break up the pattern.
- Arrange the cookies tightly together to hide any open spaces

You want to choose sturdy cookies that will hold up but also cookies that are visually appealing so that your Christmas cookie box will pop!
